Off to KillorglinOctober 8 in Ireland
The highlight of today was visiting the Titanic Experience in Cobh. Cobh was the last port of call before the Titanic headed off to New York. 123 passengers embarked, whilst 7 disembarked, and 1 jumped ship. How lucky were those 8!
The display gives a pretty graphic account of what happened, and why. It was just a litany of errors and omissions all the way, and there is no way so many people should have lost their lives. It was a sobering experience, and not many laughs as we headed out the exit.
We walked around Cobh for a while, explored the Cathedral, and had a coffee, and then it was time to head to Killorglin where we had two nights booked.
The Rivers Edge Guest House was hard to find, mainly because it was in plain sight, but when we found it we were welcomed by Sean, a typical Irishman. The place is nice and clean, and it seems that we are the only guests tonight. With no restaurant we were left to finding a suitable pub, and we did. The Bunkers Bar was quiet, friendly, and served a good pub meal.Read more
